Happy Easter!

Early this morning I pulled out some spring decorations and hid a couple of Easter treats for husband – the Easter bunny didn’t hide eggs in his house when he was growing up, so I’ve been spoiling him every Easter since. I should say, the Easter bunny usually isn’t so classy to leave Ferrero Rocher, it’s a case that our local shops were out of the regular kind, and bunny made do with what was available. 

I dug out one of my favourite charity shop purchases from when husband and I visited Canada in 2007 – a tin in the shape of a picnic basket from Goodwill. It’s seen better days as on the trip back to Ireland the lid got smushed in my luggage. I’ve been meaning for years to tap it back into shape. 
And below – my first ever stuffed animal, Honey Bunny. My dad bought her the day I was born and I’ve had her ever since. No better time of year to take center stage. 

I hope you all have a Happy Easter and an excellent long weekend full of chocolate and crafting. I’ve had my share of chocolate already today and the remainder of the weekend will be a gargantuan test of my incredibly low level of willpower. xx A

    I can see that Easter at your house is a LOT of fun! Happy Easter to you and that husband of yours!

    The tin is amazing. I think the bent top helped with the optical illusion to make me believe it was a real basket the first time I looked at it. Very cool.
    Skull eyes, awesome.
    Happy Easter!

    Happy Easter. Awwww at Honey Bunny she is adorable and what a special keepsake. We did minimal chocolate this year and I was impressed with my restraint, but that was mainly due to memories of gall bladder pain that I was in no hurry to repeat. And what a fab wife you are spoiling ya hubby, that's what it is all about. Creating new memories for each other.
